Check out this amazingly old school interactive map of electronic music genre’s dubbed Ishkur’s Guide to Electronic Music.

Created by Kenneth Tayler, the interactive map is presented in a flowchart style, incorporating some 100 electronic music sub genres with commentary. Since the map was designed pre-millenium, it traces the 1970s up until c. 2000 connecting influencer/influenced genres’a along the way (with many hidden gem tracks included).

The guide is divided into primary sections: House, Trance, Breakbeat, Jungle, Downtempo, Techno, and hardcore, with everything from Neurofunk, Speedbass, Illbient and others included. The best part of the whole thing, though, could be Taylor’s analysis of the genre’s. For example, highiting progressive as, “Progressive is a pretentious word to begin with, so if you’re bold enough to actually call your genre that you better have something pretty fucking impressive.”
